Are you eligible to make a claim?

Providing that your package holiday was ruined by an illness within the last three years which lasted for at least a week, you may be able to make a claim for compensation with the help of our legal specialists by law.

By contacting our specialist solicitors you can bring a claim under the Package Travel Regulations 1992 directly against your tour operator.

So if you feel you may be entitled to receive holiday illness compensation, get in touch with our travel law team today and start your claim online.

What is the process for making a holiday claim?

If our legal team decide that you are eligible to make a claim, we will immediately begin to draft your letter of claim which will be sent to your tour operator detailing the illness you suffered and any failings at the hotel.

Once the tour operator receives your letter of claim, they then have 6 months to investigate the case.

At the end of this 6 month period, our specialist solicitors will begin to negotiate with your tour operator to help your receive the best possible outcome for your case. With our 99% success rate, you can be confident that your claim is in the very best of hands.

Do you need insurance to make a holiday compensation claim?

We strongly advise that when making a claim with us, you take out insurance known as After the Event Insurance (ATE).

ATE allows us to represent you on a no win no fee basis. This means that in the unlikely event that your claim is unsuccessful you will pay us nothing at all. We simply will not be paid.

It is also important to note that:

  • You will only have to pay the cost of the insurance premium if your claim is successful, which means that it is paid at the end of the claim.
  • If your claim is unsuccessful you do not have to pay the premium. The insurance will cover any expenses and any of your opponent’s costs.

How much will the insurance premium cost?

In most cases which we take on the cost of the insurance premium is £65.

However In higher risk cases, for instance when court proceedings may need to be issued, the cost of the premium can increase. The maximum cost of the insurance premium is £425.

If your insurance premium is likely to cost more than £65, you will be updated and made fully aware of any rising costs by the expert that is handling your claim.
